Quarantine following contact with an infected person

Dear all,

I have recently been contacted from work because one of the colleagues is diagnosed with Covid-19. I do not have symptoms, but I am planning to take a PCR test. If the result is negative, can I stop the quarantine before the 10th day? Likewise, am I allowed to travel abroad?

Re: Quarantine following contact with an infected person

What to do following contact with an infected person

Have you had contact with a person who has tested positive for the new coronavirus? You may be contagious (able to infect other people) for the next few days without realising.
In this case the following applies:

  • Strictly follow the rules on hygiene and social distancing.
  • Keep an eye on your state of health.
  • You can continue to work, if possible from home.
If you start experiencing disease symptoms: Stay at home and follow the instructions on what to do in the event of symptoms of the disease.
Only people with whom the person with Covid-19 has been in close contact must go into compulsory quarantine. If you have to go into quarantine, the cantonal authority responsible will contact you and inform you about the next steps.

Traveling for sure will be forbidden.
